This book explores the implications of the digital world for talking therapies. It covers both the theoretical and the practical, from the way the internet might challenge and change current practice, to thinking about the legalities and training required to set up as an online practitioner. The book also covers the exciting new ways in which digital technology is extending our concept of therapy to include new communities, new ways of working, and delivering support. It's written with a broad audience in mind, so whether you're just starting to learn about digital technologies, or are a fully immersed 'digital native', this book will have something for you. --Jen Hyatt, CEO, Big White Wall Ltd

With the digital age, accessibility and convenience are key words as distance is no longer a barrier to getting psychological and emotion help. The preface of the book engages the reader in a reflective way and at times provocative in its contemporary style in looking at what it means to be online as a professional.
The table of content has clear headings covering complexity of legal and ethical issues with clear voices of contributors in the book. The key feature of this book is that each section has questions and activities to reflect on.
The book covers aspects of therapy, training and supervision and invites mental health professionals and professional bodies to consider how to engage with the digital age. The book takes the reader on a guided tour how to work therapeutically online using a variety of platforms and formats that act like a bridge between the real and the virtual world.
The book is easy to read, engages the reader with less technical jargon and the glossary helps with the language of the digital world. A helpful guide with useful case examples by multiple voices, provide creative approaches, methods and techniques to embrace the digital age with safety in mind and at a very competitive price for the gems it holds.
I particularly liked the focus on getting started and the essential tools needed for legal and ethical online therapy practice. An Aladdin’s cave of information for those working in the counselling and psychotherapy field and interested in finding out more about the challenges and excitement of ethical online work.
This book is very informative and suitable for all mental health professionals and institutions especially in the counselling and psychotherapy field on how to begin to engage with the evolving digital age to keep the profession robust and relevant in modern times.
As an excellent pioneering guide on how to get started in developing engagement with the digital world and I rate this book 10 out of 10.
